The New York Attorney-General has opened an investigation into the Donald J. Trump Foundation, citing “impropriety” concerns.
“My interest in this issue really is in my capacity as regulator of nonprofits in New York state,” New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Tuesday, speaking to CNN's ‘The Lead.’ “And we have been concerned that the Trump Foundation may have engaged in some impropriety from that point of view... and we’ve inquired into it, and we’ve had correspondence with them. I didn’t make a big deal out of it or hold a press conference. We have been looking into the Trump Foundation to make sure it’s complying with the laws governing charities in New York.”
Following news of the investigation, Jason Miller, a senior communications adviser for the Trump campaign, called Schneiderman “a partisan hack who has turned a blind eye to the Clinton Foundation for years and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.”
“This is nothing more than another left-wing hit job designed to distract from Crooked Hillary Clinton’s disastrous week,” Miller said.
